AboutCome along for traditional carol singing with Holymoorside Band at the Revolution House which has been decorated for a 17th Century Christmas. Flower arrangements by Chesterfield Flower Lovers and mince pies from Jackson's the Bakers.
The House takes its name from the Revolution of 1688. More than 300 years ago this cottage was an alehouse - the 'Cock and Pynot' (pynot is a dialect word for magpie) - and it was here that three local noblemen: the Earl of Devonshire (from nearby Chatsworth), the Earl of Danby and Mr John D'Arcy, met to begin planning their part in events which led to the overthrow of King James II in favour of William and Mary of Orange.
